NEWARK, N.J., Nov. 18, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Phone.com, a leading cloud-based phone service for small businesses and entrepreneurs, today announced that custom local phone numbers are now available for purchase through its website at phone.com.
Phone.com is the first cloud-based business phone service to offer custom local phone numbers with access to a proprietary base of numbers. Individuals and businesses can use the company’s number search tool to choose a phone number that is easy to remember and supports their offering and brand.
“Imagine you’re a florist in Albuquerque, NM, where the area code is 505,” said Ari Rabban, CEO of Phone. “If you have the phone number 1-2×2-FLOWERS, that makes it clear what your business offers, and so easy for customers to remember and reach you.”
Rabban notes that toll-free custom numbers, also known as toll-free vanity numbers, have long been popular with companies wanting to promote their brands. Phone.com now offers that same recognition to business owners wanting a local area code number.
Customized phone numbers are proven to help businesses set apart their services in the marketplace, increase the number of calls to a business, and add to that business’s credibility. They offer an unmistakable link between the phone number and what the company does, and increase word-of-mouth referrals.
“Most of us can recall a local business phone number, based simply on a catchy phone number we’ve heard in a radio jingle.” said Rabban. “Custom phone numbers give your print and media ads that extra punch.”
Rabban added that businesses and professionals can benefit from the recognition factor of a custom local phone number, especially when that number is bundled with other phone services like custom phone greetings, advanced call routing and more.
